Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania: Drese: People should look out for each other during the heat wave

Schwerin (dpa / mv) - Because of the predicted heat wave in the northeast, the Schwerin Minister of Health is appealing to people to look out for each other. "Being there for each other is particularly important these days," Stefanie Drese (SPD) was quoted as saying in a statement on Monday. For example, you can ask elderly, sick people who live alone at least once a day how they are doing, how warm they are or remind them to drink.

Older people, especially people living alone, are particularly at risk in high temperatures. They often do not perceive heat as intensely as younger people because they sweat less and are less thirsty. In addition, many older people already have health problems. People should also take special care of children and of themselves. It is better to postpone physical activities to the morning or evening, keep yourself and the apartment cool enough, drink enough or protect yourself from the sun.

According to the German Weather Service (DWD), the heat wave will also reach Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania in the next few days. According to the information, the maximum temperature on Wednesday could rise to 38 degrees.
